Ahhhhh, quiet

Thursday, June 04, 2009

My days tend to be full and crazy. This morning was no exception, with my seventh graders scurrying around helping with the mural or finishing their pictures and letters for the President; my eighth graders who came to school solely to work on the mural; three classes, lots of kids, lots of work done, and then the inevitable lots of clean up.

Then, for the past two weeks, I've had a dance group practicing in my classroom for the upcoming talent show. Okay, fine, I don't mind - but the music and the arguing get to me, as I eat lunch and cool off in my office (and do my Sparking).

But today, a few students have exams, one is at a dr appt, and one finally gave up waiting. My room is quiet. Peaceful. Relaxing after the hectic morning.

Sometimes I forget how much I like quiet. It's a rare commodity at a middle school. But so nice when you find it.

    I can relate. My kids are both in Junior High school, and they have their friends over constantly. They have so much energy at that age, don't they? I couldn't even imagine a classroom full! It's wonderful, when you think about it, though, how they have energy for the things they are passionate about. If only it could always translate to good things... But I know when my house is empty, and I've made them go outside to play, I love the peacefulness. well... as peaceful as it can be with my two dogs who love to chase my 2 cats!

Have a wonderful day!
